Brad Carter, the host (aka Roy Gerbil, aka Kevin from the corporate office, aka Dave McDaverson), is a fine example of what happens when you take a child hacker of the 1990s who spent too much time at the local Radio Shack thinking up new and interesting ways to piss off authority.
Brad Carter's unassuming and "where can we go with this" attitude takes many an unsuspecting caller down the rabbit hole of wrong numbers and checking to see if the Fridge is running. With a "Do no evil" mantra, he takes people on a mental journey to wherever they want to go, sometime inciting threats from the callers and harsh language.. But it's all in good fun, "...a JOKE! Don'tcha get it?"
It's funny, informative, and sometimes necessarily cruel and a candid look at how the telephone has empowered a generation to pretend intimacy through long distance communication and also how just everyday people can perform a virtual "B & E" on the naive. It also reinforces the age old lesson that your mother taught you, "Don't talk to strangers." And it challenges that concept of a stranger being anyone in an assumed position of authority.
Bravo, Brad Carter.. Cactus..... Cactus cactus.
